Introduction:

'This book is designed to assist classically trained musicians with the interpretation of jazz music. Comparing the interpretation of jazz music to that of classical can be likened to the comparison between spoken American and spoken English. The best way to acquire a strong American accent is to live there for a while - the sound of the language is absorbed and it becomes natural to adopt the same dialect. With jazz, it is also essential to listen carefully to players in this idiom in order to develop a 'feel' for jazz in your own playing.' James Rae
